Manual Heating And Air Conditioning

Manual Temperature
Manual Temperature Control (MTC)

1. Temperature Control

Rotate this control to regulate the temperature of the air inside the passenger compartment. Rotating the dial to the left into the blue area of the scale indicates cooler temperatures, while rotating to the right into the red area indicates warmer temperatures.

2. Blower Control

Rotate this control to regulate the amount of air forced through the ventilation system in any mode. The blower speed increases as you move the control to the right from the У0Ф (OFF) position. There are four blower speeds.

3. Recirculation Control

Rotate this control to change the system between recirculation mode and outside air mode. Recirculation can be used when outside conditions such as smoke, odors, dust, or high humidity are present.

Х Continuous use of the Recirculation mode may make the inside air stuffy NOTE:

Х Continuous use of the Recirculation mode may make the inside air stuffy and window fogging may occur.
Extended use of this mode is not recommended.
Х The use of the Recirculation mode in cold or damp weather could cause windows to fog on the inside, because of moisture buildup inside the vehicle. Select the outside air position for maximum defogging.
Х Recirculation can be used in all modes except for Defrost and Mix.
Х The A/C can be deselected manually without disturbing the mode control selection.
